<![CDATA[Gluten free on the go!]]>Mon, 20 May 2013 19:06:19 GMThttp://eringlutenfree.weebly.com/blog/gluten-free-on-the-go
So the big question is "Where can I eat gluten free on the go"

Sometimes we get stuck in the city and just need to eat!!! Here are some of the places that have gluten free menus

Dairy Queen and Wendy's have a menu that you can ask for that tells you what allergens are in which items. Usually we just get fries and a grilled chicken breast. Then we cut it up like chicken nuggets for the kids. Not supper exciting but gluten free, filling and fast!

I am told that Bad ass Jacks has a huge menu that is gluten free! So I am gonna have to try that one out soon.

Boston Pizza also has a gluten free pizza and pasta. So that is another option.

Most restaurants have a binder that should be available for you to look at and check out the ingredients in all their products. A lot of places coat their fries in flour, so be sure to ask if your restaurant does. Don't be afraid to ask for them to make accommodations.

Anyways let me know if you have some favorite places you like to eat out that make good accommodations for you!
<![CDATA[Popcorn cake]]>Mon, 20 May 2013 18:29:32 GMThttp://eringlutenfree.weebly.com/blog/popcorn-cakeThis is for mom! She loves this cake. If you ever wanna make her day, make her this popcorn cake. But who am I kidding, I love this cake too!

- 2 bags of microwave popcorn popped and remove kernels.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 8 cups marshmallow
- 1 cup or bag of m and m
- 1 cup or bag of gummy bears
- Spray Pam

Melt butter in a big saucepan. Add marshmallows and stir until melted over medium heat.

In a large bowl put popcorn, m and m's and gummy bears together.

Spray an angel food cake pan with spray Pam.

Once marshmallow mixture is melted allow to cool a couple mins,(this is so the hot mixture doesn't melt all our m and ms. Once slightly cooled pour marshmallow mixture over popcorn mixture and mix.

Press into angel food cake Pan. Cover with Saran Wrap and let sit for 1 hour. Then slice and serve.

This cake always disappears quickly in my house! ]]>

It's from a taste of home magazine but I have changed it to have less fat and be gluten free. Yummy. I am a sucker for anything pumpkin.

Chocolate chip pumpkin muffins

3 cups gf flour mix
2 teaspoons ground cinamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 eggs
2 cups sugar

1/2 cup oil
1 cup gf chocolate chips. (Enjoy life brand is yummy)

Added last.

In a bowl mix flour, cinamon, salt and baking soda
In a different bowl mix eggs, sugar, pumpkin, applesauce and oil

<![CDATA[Chocolate Almond, cashew cups!!]]>Mon, 18 Mar 2013 17:49:44 GMThttp://eringlutenfree.weebly.com/blog/chocolate-almond-cashew-cups
I got this amazing recipe from a blog I was reading. These are so delicious. Basically a protein cup covered in chocolate. So good and a great filling snack! Tastes like a chocolate bar but is much better for you.

This is the address for her blog if you wanna check it it out.

Quick and Easy Chocolate Almond/Cashew Cups
1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup raw cashews
1/4 cup flax meal
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup unsalted, natural peanut butter

1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 Tbs honey
1/2 Tbs GF vanilla extract
1/2 cup Enjoy Life GF, DF, CF chocolate chips

1. Spray a mini-muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In a small food processor, combine almonds, cashews, flax, sunflower seeds and peanut butter until it forms a paste.
3. Heat coconut oil, sugar, honey and vanilla in a small bowl in the microwave for just 15 seconds.
4. Pour coconut oil mixture into nut mixture and process until mixed (just about 10-15 seconds).
5. Put about a TBS of mixture in each tin and place in the freezer while you make the chocolate. This made 24 cups.
6. Heat chocolate in microwave for 20 seconds, then stir, then heat again for 10 seconds. Keep doing this until it's all melted. Be careful not to overcook.
7. Remove cups from the freezer and put about a tsp of chocolate on top of each cup and spread it out. Work quickly, it cools and hardens fast on the cold nut mixture. After you've put all the chocolate on, you can add more if you like.
8. Return cups to the fridge or freezer (depending on how fast you want to eat them).
9. When hardened, remove the cups from the tins and put in an airtight container in the fridge. They melt quickly so keep them in the fridge.

The Griffin Takeaway!!

Ok. So there is a great bakery and lunch shop in Saskatoon what sells gluten free food! It's amazing. They have fresh bread! It tastes so good.  I buy a loaf and we can actually eat bread without toasting it. Our favourite bread is the cheddar herb loaf. It has a great texture and it reminds me of fresh white bread. Yummy. A great addition to supper time soup! 
They also have baking. Cream puffs, brownies, cheesecakes, chocolate cakes, cupcakes, cookies, whopping pies, and so much more. All baked fresh and in store. 
They also bake cakes to order. They said they can pretty much do anything you want. For my husband Daniels birthday I ordered Blackbottom cupcakes with cherries and cream cheese in them. They only need 1 days notice for custom baking. 

When Colby is invited to a birthday party, its great to just pick up a cupcake for him so he has some cake of his own to eat at the party that is gluten free. Previously I used to bake a whole cake just so he could have a slice. It's so much easier now, to just go pick up a cupcake from the griffinon the way to the party. 

The service there was very personal. I talked to the owner Nicole Barr. She owns it with Derek Barr. She was super helpful and a talented baker. This isn't just a gluten free bakery.  Its a DELICIOUS gluten free bakery.  I have tried many different gluten free baking I can spot and taste the differance. This bakery will have you coming back for more. 

So during my visit with Nicole I told her about how going gluten free has lessened the symptoms of Colby's autism. I also told herthat there are those who are following my blog to try out the gluten free diet with their children with autism. She offered us 10% off of anything in her bakery if you mention that you read my blog. Awesome! So go check it out! And enjoy a great discount!

<![CDATA[GF Crepes!!]]>Thu, 07 Mar 2013 00:13:43 GMThttp://eringlutenfree.weebly.com/blog/gf-crepesThis recipe is from Daniels mom, Bev. She is an amazing cook. She has taught me so much in the field of cooking and baking. This is a family recipe for crepes. Traditionally eaten with real maple syrup you can add all sorts of toppings. Fruit sauce, whipped cream, peanut butter, or whatever you like on your crepes. Dan likes his with a slice of bacon inside rolled up and maple syrup on top. (Man, I wish I had his metabolism.)

I have adapted this recipe to gluten free so we can continue to enjoy it. Here it is.

- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups of GF flour mix
- 1 3/4 cups almond milk (or regular milk)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp xantham gum

Mix wet ingredients. Add dry ingredients saving the xantham gum till last. Mix until well blended. The batter should be runny. That makes for nice and thin crepes. If it looks thick add more milk, if its too thin add more GF flour mix.

Oil grill and pour batter in 1/4 scoops onto grill. Let cook till tiny bubbles appear. Then flip over. Serve warm. Leftovers are good in the fridge or if you wanna freeze then make sure you put wax paper between each crepe so they don't stick together.
<![CDATA[Gluten Free flour mix]]>Thu, 07 Mar 2013 00:01:19 GMThttp://eringlutenfree.weebly.com/blog/gluten-free-flour-mix
My all purpose gluten free flour replacement mix was given to me by Daniel's aunt Eileen. Who has been cooking and baking gluten free for years. She has tried many kinds of flour and this is what she has gone with for optimum health benefits. Thanks Eileen! 

Get a container that will hold at least about 12 cups of flour in it. Mix in the following.

6 cups brown (or white) rice flour
1 cup potato starch (not flour)
1 cup tapioca flour

You can boost the health value of your baking by adding these as well. 
1 cup quinoa flour (optional) 
1 cup ground flax seeds (optional) 
1 cup chia seeds (optional)

That's it! So when i refer to GF Flour Mix, this is what i am talking about. That is the mix I use for 80%of my baking. It's one that is versatile. Then just add xantham gum according to what you are baking. The xantham gun is what is honing to bind your food together and make it less crumbly.
